Â£ symbol not allowed in sftp logins?

When I try to connect to a server via sftp using an account withthe Â£ symbol in the password filezilla reports a connection error - I expect this is due to the encoding of the Â£ symbol in the password string passed to the server - I am a php developer and have seen many problems with the Â£ symbol under utf-8 encoding - so maybe this is the issue?
When using putty to connect to the server with exactly the same credentials I can login without a problem, so I'm quite sure it's a problem with filezilla's inbuilt ssh client.
I'd love to use filezilla for all my ftp related work but with this issue it makes it impossible :(
Keep up the good work guys
